The Bee Short Course for Community Scientists: building wild bee conservation skills together

A collaborative effort from: The OSU Department of Entomology and The Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens

In partnership with:

The U.S. National Native Bee Monitoring Research Coordination Network (RCN). Learn more about the U.S. National Native Bee Network here, and visit their website here. While the RNC is not focusing on community scientists, the network has a large (and growing) following of people who want to help wild bees. The Bee Short Course is an ideal option to train community scientists across the country. Ideally, these trained community scientists will link with local wild bee projects to share their time and skills.

This program is funded in part by a USDA/NIFA Integrated Pest Management Pollinator Health grant, with support from Davey Tree Expert Company. Many thanks to our funders!

The Bee Short Course is coordinated by Denise Ellsworth, OSU Department of Entomology.
